This wood is from newly pulled Manzanita root burls. It is ideal to immediately work the wood when the moisture content is the highest. The grain will check and split as it dries and the fibers are more difficult to turn when dried. Expect movement and checking to develop. The colors are a rich pinkish red that are even more stunning than Madrone burl. Dirt, incursions, voids, and checks are present in all pieces. Keep these in a bucket full of water until turned or cut. These can ship to the USA only. If not kept in a bucket of water, the shelf life for these burls is 30 days. The product must be used within that time frame to avoid severe splits. The beauty of these burls is that if you turn them wet, you can yield absolutely amazing projects. The burl eye count in these is substantially higher than most burls!
